Like many states, Georgia drivers can expect to have their licenses suspended or revoked after a DUI. This penalty can affect your ability to commute to work and school while impacting both personal and professional relationships.
The 30-Day Rule And License Suspension
Thomas A. Camp, P.C., has handled many DUI administrative license suspension cases and can help you if you need assistance restoring your license. Contacting our firm in a timely manner is imperative. After the time of your DUI arrest, you have 30 calendar days to request an administrative license suspension hearing. Mailing this request within 30 calendar days will give you the chance to preserve driving privileges and retain your temporary permit as you go through your more extensive DUI defense. Administrative license suspensions are handled on a case-by-case basis. However, if you fail to file the necessary paperwork within 30 calendar days, your license will automatically be administratively suspended. The point to underscore is that if you were served with an administrative suspension notice at arrest based on your refusal to submit to a state-requested breath test or blood test, it is crucial that you contact an attorney for assistance because that can lead to a 12-month “hard” driver’s license suspension with no opportunity for you to retain or obtain a limited driving permit. Thomas A. Camp can help you submit paperwork in a timely manner. Mr. Camp is a qualified DUI administrative license suspension lawyer who can also help you understand this process including what to expect if your license is administratively suspended.
